The Doctors: Gun-Wielding Photograph Banned From Yearbook
One student’s picture of choice for his high school yearbook has stirred up controversy after the school decided to ban the picture. The photograph shows the young man holding a gun, and the principal argued that he was following school rules. Josh’s father Charles is fighting for his son’s right to have the picture in the yearbook, saying it’s his son’s way of showing patriotism and doesn’t break any school rules. Josh said guns are a big hobby of his, so he wanted to express that in his yearbook. His parents are hoping to have the decision overturned.
Charles and Josh joined the show, explaining that he posted the picture on social media, wanting the community to talk about it. Dr Rachael Ross explained that from the outside looking in, people automatically think about school shootings and it sends the wrong message. Charlie argued that “rights aren’t based on popularity.” He said they were talking about a fear of something “that is just a tool” comparing the to prescriptions and the abuse of them. Dr Travis Stork is all for personal rights, but thought the picture seemed “tone deaf” because of what’s going on in our country currently, and said he respected the school’s decision.
Do you agree with the picture being banned or do you think it should’ve been allowed in the yearbook?
The Doctors: Horrific Result From Taking Diet Pills
The Doctors then switched gears to share photos of a 25-year-old father in U.K. who accidentally overdosed on controversial diet pills called DNP. He took eight in one day to lose fat and gain muscle. Doctors had to cut part of his leg off because it literally died as a result of the pills, which raised his body temperature to 107 degrees. The man was put into a medically-induced coma. DNP is highly toxic and causes your body temperature to artificially rise which will obviously cause you to burn more calories, but not in a good way. If diet pills are being used, they should only be used under the direction of a doctor. Plus, you can’t use them in an additive effect, hoping that taking more than one will increase the side effects.
